Rachel and Ben Tellano from Hart County 4-H represented Georgia at the 2019 National Congress in Atlanta from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3.
More than 800 senior 4-H’ers from around the United States came to the event as state winners.
Youth attended classes in the areas of communications, technology, the environment, agriculture and youth and community development. Business, community and academic leaders addressed these topics in assemblies and seminars. Each student spent a portion of one day working in a community service location throughout the Atlanta area. Cultural entertainment such as the Puerto Rican Dancers, Hawaii Hula Dancers and a North Carolinian banjo player was provided from delegates across the nation.
Students could also attend one Atlanta tour, ranging from the College Football Hall of Fame to the CNN Center and landmarks like the Georgia Aquarium.
To qualify attending National Congress, Rachel won her arts and crafts project while Ben won in the communications project earlier this year at State Congress.
